Math in a Flash

I am always bewildered by the fact that parents, other teachers, administrators etc. forget how young 3rd graders really are. I feel like it often in my mission in life to keep these little guys in the lime light of Early Childhood. Here I am...Super Early Childhood Announcer. Just kidding, just kidding. In reality I do continue to explain and model early childhood beliefs in my room. Who doesn't love hands-on explorations? Who doesn't love learning by trial and error? My kids certainly love it and so do I! So this was just a day at my back table where the kids were "going at it". No worksheets to fill out, no one to tell the yes or no but themselves! IT WAS GLORIOUS!!! :) Here they are measuring and figuring out self proposed questions. YESSSSSSSSsssssssssssss!
